NEW DELHI: Rare artworks by eminent Indian modernists, including S H Raza, Tyeb Mehta, MF Husain and Krishen Khanna, will go under the hammer at AstaGuru's upcoming Modern Indian Art 'Collectors Choice' auction, starting Thursday.
The two-day auction, showcasing a collection of 164 artworks, will present bidders with masterpieces of some of the finest Indian modernists such as Nicholas Roerich, Rabindranath Tagore, Amrita Sher-Gil, M V Dhurandhar, F N Souza, Jamini Roy, Akbar Padamsee, Nandalal Bose, Arpita Singh and Bikash Bhattacharjee, among others.
Leading the 'Collectors Choice' auction line-up is a 1962 work by artist Tyeb Mehta, who was residing in London at that time, and was inspired by the works of British figurative painter Francis Bacon.
Executed with a heavy impasto technique and a restricted colour palette, the canvas features a lonely, isolated figure. It will be offered with an estimate of Rs 3-4 crore.
